Today, I had an employee come in 20 minutes late with the excuse, "There's a Pokemon gym across the street!" FML

My boss just had to ban Pokémon Go because all of our employees walked out yesterday to find a Squirtle.

Unless your workplace is also a gym, I see no problem.

He's trying to wheedle his way into your good graces after that debacle.

How tf can he ban a game? He can't delete from their phones.

#16-Banned it from being played at work...wow.

No, but he can sure as hell fire them.

Is that what they're calling"morning wood" these days?

That's the first Pokémon I caught #3. And WTF #36?

manager uses fire attack!

It's super effective!

What should you do? -Epic music plays-

Polemania fainted! Manager recieved $200!

And when they're unemployed, they'll have all the time in the world to catch 'em all.

Thank you for your brilliant and cohesive response to this FML. I have been enlightened.

Please for the love of everything unholy, fire the bloody idiot.

Or OP can at least give a written warning, so other employees will know that the boss is serious.

I'm with #9 on this one. There are plenty of acceptable reasons to be late; "I stood outside playing Pokemon GO for 20 minutes" isn't one of them. Two minutes I could let slide, but not 20.

Looks like they just Jynxed their employment

I think I've been an hour late twice now due to grabbing Pokemon in my neighborhood before I started work. Of course, the game has only been out for two work days...

An hour late??? TWICE? Dude, get your priorities straight.

Keep that up and you won't have a job soon.

Seriously, how do you still have a job?

#12 will be out a job soon, or should be. And a lot of others. Prioritize your time better

Most jobs let you set your own hours. As long as I'm not in past a certain time, it doesnt matter
